Poem of the Month “In May” – William Henry Davies Yes, I will spend the livelong day With nature in this month of May; And sit beneath the trees, and share My bread with birds whose homes are there; While cows lie down to eat, and sheep Stand to their necks in grass so deep; While birds do sing with all their might, As though they felt the earth in flight.

Song of the Month Yankee Doodle went to town A-riding on a pony, Stuck a feather in his cap And called it macaroni’. Chorus: Yankee Doodle keep it up, Yankee Doodle dandy, Mind the music and the step, And with the girls be handy.

Book of the Month In our quest to build our students’ vocabulary and academic language, we are continuing our tradition of all classrooms reading the same book each month.   Our Book-of-the Month for May is Mother Teresa: The Smile of Calcutta written by Charlotte Grossetete and illustrated by Catherine Chion. We selected this book because Mother Teresa is featured on our Peace First Mural and we discovered that our children did not know who she was.

Therefore, we will take the time to teach the children about a great saint who lived during our time.  The children will learn that Mother Teresa dedicated her life to helping the poorest of the poor with a comforting smile, a consoling arm, a soothing hand, a kind look that gave dignity, and tears of compassion to bring light to those who lived in the darkness of poverty.  This fascinating story will help our children understand a deeper meaning of love and concern for others.
